they need dual exhaust, i know it has dual exhaust, but it doesn't look like it

add dual exhaust, ground effects (subtle!!) gto style hood scoop and a sunroof option, and it'll be a hit, just dont let the price get to high, whats it cost now? sticker should never be more than 37995 with all those options added.

There are no options....

Again, it'* not an F body, and it'* not supposed to be. GTO'* will outhandle any pony car. You can't compare the base GTO that'* out right now, to top level Cobra R'* or WS6'* with upgraded suspenstions, and higher engine tuning. Save those for the Judge.

We have a GTO here, and guess what? It'* purple... :P They wouldn't let me touch it, let alone test drive it :( I think they heard of me somehow.

I was disappointed when I saw the GTO I though it was going to look more aggressive. Otherwise I would have considered one. I'll definitely stick with my Trans Am because I am having too much fun . I recently changed my supercharger to a Procharger. I should be in the 530rwhp range(I will know for sure in the next 3 weeks when I go to the dyno). I commute 180 miles a day and get 26 miles to the gallon on the highway.
